Pros: It's a beautiful and simple case, with tons of mounting options for both air and watercooling. The powdercoating is done very well and I couldn't find any noticeable blemishes. It also has a fan filter for the power supply. The I/O panel is also very nicely put together, with the switches feeling nice, the SD card readers being pre-wired for USB 2.0 headers, and the connectors all fitting cables snugly but not too hard.
Cons: The windows, wow. They're really closer to just a panel. You can't see anything unless it's near the direct path of any lighting in the case. The case is also very cramped. It could do well with a total height increase of about two inches to give the front 5.25 drive bay more clearance with both top cooling options and the graphics card, as well as about a two inch length increase to give the power supply more clearance with the 3.5 drive bay cage. I have an EVGA 750BQ power supply in it, and as it is, it's very cramped even with a modular power supply. Finally, the case is rather flimsy. The top panel just slid off. I'm not talking about the removable screen, I'm talking the whole top panel that it pops into. It just kinda sits there now, and that happened before I even got it out of the box, it doesn't even look broken.
Other Thoughts: I like the case for what it is, although I wish the windows were either clear or not so heavily tinted. As I always just run one graphics card, and go for smaller motherboards, this case is perfect for that. I just really wish the windows were more to my tastes, the plastic wasn't so flimsy,READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap and small.
Cons: Where do I start? First, after waiting three weeks to arrive it was having problems simply connecting to my wireless network. After half an hour of troubleshooting I finally got it to connect. At 20 feet away it just refused to work. Tried it on another machine where it would sluggishly load some webpages, so I left it there since that machine didn't get used.
So I went back to using my old Netgear WNA1000 that dropped signals that I ordered this to replace. That got busted while I was moving and I was forced to use this to get my desktop to connect. At my new house this will /still/ not work worth the power it takes to turn on the LED. 50 feet from the router it's struggling to even load Google. At 75 feet my Xbox 360 will stream Netflix effortlessly, my phone will load webpages in a flash, and my laptop does everything it should without a hiccup. This has been hung up on Google (still not loading anything) for the entire five minutes it's taken me to write this review.
Other Thoughts: Spend your money elsewhere. I'm going to crack it open and see if soldering a better antenna on will help, but I guess for now it's time to use a bridge that I had hoped to use elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sony PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset
Pros: These headphones have very good sound quality, the build quality is great, they're very comfortable, obviously wireless, and they've got some really great features like simulated surround sound and adjustable volume. Not to mention they come with a nice carrying case and 3.5mm cable. Oh, did I mention the microphone is built in and out of the way?
The packaging was simple and it adequately protected the headphones.
Cons: Battery life! Battery life! Battery life! I'm sitting here at about 4 hours of use after being charged and they're beeping at me about low battery. This is a HUGE issue since they take roughly three hours to charge. If my phone only worked a little longer than it charged I'd be livid. The simulated surround sound is also not available to PC users. I would understand if the PC was a fully competing platform to the PlayStation3/4 but Sony also makes laptops and it would make a wonderful selling point. They simply do not have the software available from the OEM to do it.
Finally, and this isn't what I'm taking an egg off for simply because it's personal preference, but I wish that I could use these with bluetooth. It's nice having wireless on my PC, but it's kind of a pain having to use the wire on my phone. I'd like to simply change my headphones to channel 2 and use them with my phone.
Other Thoughts: For the price these are a great headphone in terms of build and audio quality as well as features from the box. However, the battery life is terrible. I unplugged them from my computer at roughly 10:30 and they literally died in the last two minutes, so before 2:27.
While my cons may be longer than the pros, they do not outweigh them. Do not hesitate to get these headphones if you do not need to use them wirelessly with anything other than a computer or PlayStation for more than a few hours. The sound quality is excellent and the build quality better. There were some cosmetic plates described in the manual and while you can remove the ones on there I cannot find any to replace them.
Only things I'd suggest Sony improve upon are software support for Windows PCs, battery life, and personally I'd like to see a version without the PlayStation logos.
